Diets in Review - Find the Right Diet for You

Watch What You Drink, Not Just What You Eat

When we talk about diet, it’s almost always about solid foods. But don’t overlook what you drink. It’s a big mistake, as it impacts our weight a great deal. Here’s the report from CNN:


sodaA new study from John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has found that reducing liquid calories will help you lose weight and keep it off. This is especially true if you minimize or eliminate sugary drinks such as fruit juice and soda. I like to have the occasional glass of OJ like anyone else, but you’re better off eating your oranges than drinking them. Otherwise, you’re getting a lot of calories without the sensation of satisfying your hunger.

And if you don’t realize how much small changes can add up to big rewards, think about this: cutting out 150 calories every day could save you from gaining 15 pounds a year.

So, instead of a soda, try seltzer water with a splash of lemon or lime. It tastes almost like a light soda, with a little carbonated zing, for 0 calories.
